The same screen theme is used for the standard issue type and the sub-type type. There is a customer field called “Sprint” in the screen theme. The problem is that I cannot see the same fields that I can see in the standard issue type, in my Sub-type type task.
What have I missed to display the custom field “Sprint” in the Sub-tasks?
Sorry, I was totally unclear on this. Jira Software comes with a Sprint field built into it. This appears as a "custom field" but my question was if you have added your own Sprint field. And I did not explain that there was a difference.
Could you take another look at the list of custom fields? Do you have one or two or many fields called "sprint"? The Jira Software built-in field will have "Locked" next to its name. I need to check if it's that built-in one we're working with, or a standard custom field?
Ok, great. Again, I'm really sorry I was so unclear.
The Sprint field in Jira Software does not apply to sub-tasks.
The logic is good - sub-tasks are a part of their parent issue, not independent entities, and hence they are only "in a sprint" by virtue of their parent being in it. Technically here, the sprint field is of no use as it's irrelevant to sub-tasks and even if it were there, you couldn't change it.
But I personally find the lack of display very annoying. I understand "part of the parent", but that doesn't mean I don't think of any sub-task (along wiht all its siblings) being part of the sprint. You can usually spot a Jira I've been an admin on because there's a scripted custom field with a name like "Sprint (all issue types)", amongst others.
Thanks, Yes as rightly mentioned by @Nic Brough _Adaptavist_ the sub-tasks are child issue for a Story or a Bug hence the sprint applied to the parent issue will flow down to the sub-task.
FYI - For this reason it is bit tricky or difficult if you are migrating sub-tasks from one Jira instance to another.
